GRAMMAR.

I met a traveller from an antique land,
Who said : “Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the Desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half-sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown
And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command,
Tell that the sculptor well those passions read
Which still survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed :
And on the pedestal these words appear :-

My name is Ozymandias, King of kings,
'Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair 1'
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare

The lone and level sands stretch far away.
